7:02 am
hospital this morning. keir, good morning to you. >> hey, matt, good morning. so many people were injured in that crash they're being treated at a number of hospitals here. one of the at least five americans who was injured are being treated as the investigation gets underway. the driver of the train was lead away by investigators as reports say the train was traveling at more than twice the 50 miles per hour speed limit. so the question today is was the driver to blame or was there some kind of a system failure? >> reporter: is this the man who causederup europe's worst train disaster in decades? he was the driver, now under investigation for driving too fast. on his facebook page, he has boasted about speeding posting pictures of the speedometer, 200 kilometers an hour. that's more than 120 miles per hour.
7:03 am
onboard, a mormon missionary, and he describes the crash as a scene from hell. he believes the train was going too fast. for most of the trip it was like 60 miles per hour but toward the end it said 194, and that was about 130 miles per hour. her husband and daughter along five americans injured. back home in virginia, neighbors are heartbroken. >> she is a phenomenal person. anyone that knew her knew she had god in her life. >> reporter: another injured was robert from houston. >> became chaos. things flew and everything. there was sudden darkness and i was thrown on one side of the train. >> reporter: his wife was badly wounded. >> she was sitting on the side where the train flipped over so everything kind of fell on her and two other people and she was under about -- under three people and about five chairs and
7:04 am
maybe about three or four luggages. and so i couldn't see her at all. i'm screaming out for her name. >> reporter: amateur video shows smoke pouring from the wreckage. my god the camera man said, this is a nightmare. in the chaos, robert was desperately calling for his wife. >> i was hysterical and screaming out her name just to make sure she would know we were still looking for her. >> reporter: spain in is in mourning. the king visited the hospital where his wife was critically ill. >> all she wanted was me to hug her and that's all i could do. >> reporter: while his wife is critical, she is stable. she says that doctors say that when he is by her bedside she responds. her heart rate goes up. she knows he is there. and this is heartbreaking. they were in europe for their daughter's wedding and now he
7:05 am
and his daughter are by her hospital bed, savannah. >> horrific story. thank you very much. back here we turn to the widening sexting scandal involving anthony weiner. he admits to sending messages to as many as three women after resigning in disgrace. kelly o'donnell is on the story for us. good morning to you. >> good morning savannah. anthony weiner keeps talking and we get new specifics. a range for how many women were involved in his secretive life of racy messages leaving open the possibility there could be more and we meet a 24-year-old woman giving her side of the online encounters and the impact of it all is showing up in new polling. >> reporter: anthony weiner helped out at a brooklyn soup kitchen where he stirred the pot again. >> it's not dozens and dozens. it's six to ten i suppose but i can't tell you absolutely what someone else is going to
7:06 am
consider inappropriate or not. >> feeling more heat, he offered more specifics about how many women he or his online alter ego carlos danger secretly sexted with after he quit congress in 2011. >> how many did you have with women after you resigned that >> i don't believe more than three. >> sidney weathers claims to be one of them online and by phone. >> i feel sick about it. i'm disgusted by him. he is not who i thought he was. >> reporter: she says it went on for several months, and weiner sent her pictures of himself. >> i was shocked that he was willing to do that and the fact
7:07 am
that it was his idea was even more shocking. >> reporter: the fallout can be daunting and measured and looking daunting for this political future. a new poll taken after the latest scandal broke shows him losing what had been a narrow lead. now christine quinn is out front with 25%. weiner drops to 16% in the poll. among democrats surveyed, 55% have an unfavorable view of weiner. weiner insists he did get treatment and is no longer sending those messages. >> i'll leave it to the voters. if they believe this is disqualifying or they will never vote for me, i understand that. >> reporter: he says he has had therapy that helped and insists the online relationships are over and said he and his wife new all this would be part of the campaign. but imagine another six and a half weeks of this before the

7:09 am
women, holding them for more than a decade inside his cleveland home before they managed to escape. >> these young women suffered enough and to see a long trial go on with a lot of hurtful and dark and evil testimony given, it's not going to serve any purpose. >> reporter: earlier this month, the victims released their own video breaking their silence about the ordeal for the first time since their dramatic homecomings. >> i would say thank you for support. >> i want everyone to know how happy i am to be home with my family and my friends. >> we have been hurt by people, but we need to rely on god. >> reporter: experts say a plea deal could help speed the healing process for the three young women. >> this would allow them to put the legal proceedings behind them and move forward with their lives. >> reporter: the judge in the case spoke to the media and said
7:10 am
even if castro accepts the deal, he is not going to sentence him today. kevin in cleveland this morning, thank you. and now to another high profile case. a second juror from the george zimmerman tria controversial verdict. here's nbc's mark potter. >> reporter: in an interview juror b-29 said she was the one whose first vote in deliberations was to find george zimmerman guilty of second degree murder. >> george zimmerman got away with murder but you can't get away from god. and at the end of the day, he's going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with. >> reporter: but the only ethnic minority juror who calls herself maddie said the jury came to agree there wasn't enough proof to find him guilty. >> as the law was read to me if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally you can't find -- you can't say he is guilty. >> we the jury find george zimmerman not guilty. >> reporter: and she stands by her verdict.
7:11 am
>> i stand by the decision because of the law, and if i stand by the decision because of my heart, he would have been guilty. >> in a statement made thursday trayvon martin's mother said it is devastating for my family to hear the comments from juror b-29 comments which we already knew in our hearts to be true. that george zimmerman literally got away with murder. nbc news reached out to george zimmerman's attorney but not no response. she feels the trial was a publicity stunt and feels she owes trayvon martin's family an apology. for today, mark potter, nbc news miami. >> we turn to natalie who is here with details on a cyber fraud case. natalie? >> the federal government calling it the biggest credit card hacking scheme ever. the justice department says credit card numbers were stolen from the data bases of 7-11, jcpenney, jet blue and other companies. it lasted seven years and millions were affected.

five men have been charged. ceremonies underway in north korea to mark the 60th anniversary of the end of the korean war. ann curry is there covering the festivities. >> reporter: good morning from north korea where our news team is set to cover a massive military parade here tomorrow commemorating the 60th anniversary of the end of the korean war. though our movements here are tightly controlled we're getting small glimpses of the people largely cutoff from the rest of the world. arriving at night in a nation shrouded in secrecy, the world's press gets a rare invitation to go inside north korea. restricted to traveling in the capitol and only with government minders we are moved quickly. sometimes stopped from video taping and warned anti-american sentiment is high because of this anniversary. the first thing the government wanted us to see is war heros. many now in their 80s lined up
7:13 am
once again. all of these people are coming to mark the opening of the national cemetery dedicated to what they're calling the martyrs of the korean war. this is essentially north korea's version of arlington cemetery. the government also wanted to make sure we saw the nation's new 30-year-old leader who threatened the u.s. with another war just last april. then to our surprise, we were taken to a flower show to see an orchid grown to honor his father and grandfather. amid the flowers, military hardware. but also along the way we were able to see unscripted glimpses of a changing place. a few more cars but mostly people still get around on foot or bike. just what kind of north korea these children will grow up in will depend on how much change
7:14 am
this regime allows. at tomorrow's parade it's expected we'll see north korea's newest military hardware. if kim jong un also makes a speech it could signal which way he is taking this nuclear-capable nation, and as you can expect, this nation and others will be watching closely. thank you. >> thank you. new surveillance footage surfaced of aaron hernandez where he is holding a handgun in his home. the video was captured on the day his friend odin lloyd was killed. the imagines were released as part of a motion media groups. hernandez has pleaded not guilty to the murder. haliburton pleaded guilty to destroying evidence related to the oil spill in 2010. they will pay a fine and is subject to three years of probation. well, dunking a basketball,

7:18 am
that wide. when i saw him he was crying his eyes out like all babies do i suppose. but it's fantastic to have another addition to the family. i only hope my brother knows how expensive my baby sitting charges are. >> reporter: the next few questions, harry was not as willing to play around with. >> is william cut out for father hood. >> of course he is. hopefully most people are. otherwise why bother having a child. >> any characteristics you spot? >> he's about four days old. you can judge that one by your selves. i have no idea. >> ending with harry's plans in the little one's life. >> make sure he has a good up bringing, keep him out of harm's way and make sure he has fun. the rest of it i leave to the parents. >> leaving it to the parents is what the royal family happens to do these days. >> i'm going on holiday. >> william and kate doing things their way even breaking with old protocol. they waited four hours to announce their first child's arrival, chose e-mail and twitter before the paper
7:19 am
announcement. joked with the crowd -- >> got her looks thankfully. >> no, no. >> reporter: and who could forget william strapping in his own car seat and driving them away like any proud new father. one historian thought it was interesting that the first visitors to see the baby were not prince charles or the queen but the middletons and now baby george is living with them in the country side. that's a first but could be a good thing. matt? >> michelle kosinski in london this morning. thank you very much. >> let's turn to our royal expert -- just kidding. coming up, george and barbara bush open up to jenna bush-hager about a former president's decision to shave his head in support of a boy with leukemia. >> exclusive interview with the father of nsa leaker, edward snowden. were his son's actions worth the price he is now paying? we'll ask him. but first, this is "today" on

at the concerted effort by both, many of the congressmen, the peter kings of the world, the michel michelle bauchmanns to demonize my son and focus the issue on my son and not talk about the fact that they have to talk about this being constitutional. >> 90% of people think your son is wrong here. >> look at what is reported in the media. many of the american people i would hope they would have watched his video. >> if i could interject, four members of congress aligned him as a traitor. that's defined at letting war against the united states. the president said he's a hacker. you have all of this huge media trying to portray him in a negative light. so what do you expect? >> in a letter the president, we're also apauled at the scorn for process, the rule of law, and the presumption of innocence
7:47 am
as regards edward. the government is happy to show due process if your son could come back and answer to the charges. >> let me answer that, in order to have due process you have to have a fair impartial administration here and when you're calling someone a traitor, convicting him in the press. having the president of the united states, a little bit like richard nixon saying charlie manson was guilty before you have any trial at all that doesn't inspire confidence that you're going to have justice. we wrote a letter to the attorney general of the united states asking to engage in a discussion to ensure that he not be obtained prior to trial. we have silence. how does that inspire confidence. >> let me end with mr. snowden. his life will never be the same. whether it's living in a foreign country or coming back to the united states to face charges. perhaps spending the rest of his
7:48 am
life in a federal prison. as a father, was it worth it? >> at last nothing is sacred but the integrity of one's own mind. emmerson said that. when i take my final breath have to be comfortable with who i was. i think my son, whether it's today or 100 years from now he'll be comfortable with what he did. he did what he knew was right. he shared the truth with the american people. what we shoes to do with it is up to us as a people. are we going to listen to people like mike rogers that say trust us when we still have someone like james clapper who lied to congress. he is still being paid and serving this country. he works directly. we have much work to do. this story is far from done. >> if he walks out of that airport in moscow, are you immediately on a plane to go see him? >> we're certainly going to do our very best to connect with him and discuss.

>> history will vindicate edward snowden like it did the founding fathers indistinguishable from the surveillance programs of the nsa. >> thank you for being here. i really appreciate it. >> thank you. >> 7:48. coming up, what's the breaking point in a relationship. the strong reaction among women for huma abedin's decision to stand by her husband anthony weiner. first, these messages. the new guy is loaded with protein! i'll believe it when i--- [ both ] oooooh...

8:18 am
>> good morning. >> just like every smart woman i know has a different opinion on this. they wrote she graduated from sympathetic victim to pathetic inab inableer they wrote she is probably the first wife who chose to stay without taking on the stinch of victim. >> i think the stinch of victim is there. i think a lot of people are talking about that and i think it's unfortunate. first of all, who are we to judge what's going on inside someone else's married. as someone married for a long time it's hard to do that but she is a public figure by virtue of who she is married to. >> you take a different view? you think she -- you don't have a problem with what she is doing? >> no, it's obviously not the first time a woman stood by her man and it will not be the last time but it's easy to box her up and judge her because it reminds us of women before her
8:19 am
because she's foolish and stund but we don't know her and the bigger picture of their marriage. we know she is a professional. she's a respectful woman. she's a mother and trying to keep it together. we need to keep her out of this. it's not our place. >> lisa, what bothers some people is not just that she is standing by her man for her own reasons, she is taking it into the public realm. >> what they do behind doors is their own business and what they do in a press conference is our business. it's time to say good-bye of the door mat wife publicly humiliated by her husband. it's a form of apus whbuse when happens over and over again. she has to read from a prepared script. only a political wife would say that. it's just so unreal. >> what do we think about the fact that we're talking about huma abedin and not anthony
8:20 am
weiner. >> the point is anthony weiner. he is the one running for office. >> she did sign on for this. she talked about in that article the fact that you put yourself out there. i think the problem that i have with this is that she really didn't put herself out there in this particular case. he put her out there. >> they both put her out there. my position is if you're going to have your fun without the wife then you can face the press core without her too. stand there by yourself and don't drag her into this. >> he didn't drag her. she put herself out there. >> people told her you're going to stand there and read this -- >> but doesn't that minimize her making her own choice and having the strength to do so? she is incredibly savvy herself. >> and ultimately marriage is supposed to be together. she is trying to hold her family together. >> no matter what? >> fool me once, you know, shame on me. whatever that saying is. >> how many weathers are we

supposed to endure in a marriage. >> he promised he wouldn't do it again. i made a mistake the first time. i'm not going to do it again. they regrouped and we thought that was it. the texting and stuff started happening after he did that. >> i told you there's going to be more and there's still going to be more. >> i agree i just don't think it's our place to judge someone else's marriage. >> we proved our point that it is a conversation starter. great to have you ladies here. send it over to matt. >> thank you. if you're a fan of golf the man with us needs no introduction. phil mickelson. his latest over the weekend, an incredible come from behind victory at the british open. phil mickelson good morning. >> thanks. >> raise your hand if you've had a pretty good couple of weeks. >> it's been an incredible couple of weeks. the two weeks in scotland having amy and the kid there is made it so special but actually this week, the week after the british is one of my favorite weeks of the year because amy and i for
8:22 am
the 9th year now partnered with exxon mobil to create a teacher's academy and we're passionate about math and science and math and science played a huge role in winning this cup. i had to work with the engineers to get spin off of my tee shots in this win and that three wood i hit on 17, the two shots were the two best of my life i couldn't hit a year ago. >> talk to me about the fact that -- there was a time in your career where you were known as a guy that come down to the final round, had a chance to win, you'd hit one wacky shot or take one risk that people didn't think you should take and it would slip away. you're not that guy anymore. what's the biggest difference? >> well, first, just saying that it was only one shot is very nice of you, thank you. >> you're my guest. >> you know, i am trying to go out and win tournaments and if i fail i fail. if i succeed, that's great. but i'm not afraid of failure. it's part of life. >> is that because you got a couple of huge victories under
8:23 am
your belt and you're not still trying to prove yourself. >> that could be but i was like that before. my worst, hardest loss of my career was the u.s. open just a month ago and for days i didn't get out of bed. i was tired. it was a trip we had to montana that got me out of my funk and i realized that i'm playing great golf. i can't let one loss affect the rest of the year and i was able to turn it around and make one of the greatest high of my career. >> you're going to the hall of fame in golf. no question about that. i watched you hugging amy and the kids after the win at the british open and i want to ask you a different sided question. if your kids get asked in five years about you, and they're not allowed to talk about golf, what do you want them to say? >> well, i love what they said when they were asked about me, they said he's just always been dad to me and now they're actually seeing me play well and win big championships at an age they can understand what's going on. and so it's a unique dynamic because they have always just seen me as dad and that's what i
8:24 am
hope in five years they continue saying. >> so many emotion moments. i love watching your long-term caddie break downs in tears. are you as proud of the win or the way you won? >> this is the greatest accomplishment of my career. the one tournament that required shots that i didn't grow up playing. i had to change a lot of my game and practice hard to develop the skills to win this british open and to play the best round of my life and the greatest last eight holes to capture this is what is so rewarding. >> you talk about skills, i want to walk with you because you also mention the mickelson exxon mobil teacher's academy and in a strange way you're telling nme that the game of ping-pong plays into it. >> we're teaching action and reaction and motion in forces. >> i need a lefty paddle. go ahead. so we're using all of these
8:25 am
motions that we talk about in our academy. right now we're using angle, we're using spin, and if i put back spin like that it rolls off the paddle into the net. if i put top spin like this, you have to watch it. so it might go long. so you have to adjust the face angle of your pattern based on what i'm doing. >> teaching kids and teachers with things they can identify with, that comes into their every day lives. >> that's it. so we're trying to give them new innovative techniques to inspire their students and use abilities so that they're involved in the learn progress rather than just telling them from a textbook. >> nice shot. >> i saw that back spin. >> most importantly continued success with the teachers academy and keep lighting it upton golf course, phil from train after your local news.

9:33 am
but didn't start saving until you were in your 40s. how come? >> what was the reason for that? >> didn't have the money. >> there you go. makes sense. >> well, you also had an, a familiar problem for many, in the year 2000 you had about $1,000,000 back then in your nest egg and retirement money put away but you lost a lot when the markets crashed. >> 35% of it went away. >> 35% of it went away so you had to continue working. >> correct. we had our own loss tens of decades like the japanese did. >> exactly. i believe we have their income before retirement and comparing it to their after retirement. >> you'll see they're living right now on about 87% of what they were living on before retirement, which is actually fine. >> right. >> you want to be aiming to have about 85%. so they actually have a little bit of a cushion. and they're watching their expenses very carefully.

9:35 am
you can up it to 500, thr$500, quarters of a million dollars by the time you're in your 60s. >> do your jobs offer 401(k)s at all. >> mine does. >> not right now. >> do you put anything into your 401(k) plan. >> i do not. >> there's another opportunity you're missing. >> it would be. although they don't match contributions so the flexibility of the roth with the amount they're able to put away makes more sense. >> what would you tell these guys? >> i think they have to be more disciplined and start now. i'm so sorry that we didn't. it would have made a big difference in the future. >> good lessons we can all learn generationally. >> something for the kids too, ira 529 program. >> good idea. >> thank you. >> thank you all, thank you to jean as well. coming up next. mel b. and her family will be cooking up a storm in the kitchen. it's going to get messy. that's coming up right after this.
